Updated: Proposed legislation, Oregon Bill 1534, threatens to make tweeting about Occupy a crime.... wait what?
came across this tweet this morning: "Proposed legislation, Oregon Bill 1534, threatens to make tweeting about Occupy a crime http://t.co/vCoUszd1”
Is this something that a state could do or this even an accurate explanation of the bill?
Seems kind of shady to me...
Any Oregonians out there care to comment? Or any that are familiar?
Maybe Nilay's expertise in law could help in finding the truth! :) thanks!
Update: And now it's dead!
